Video: “Driving” Federal Debt

Here is a great video explaining the growth in federal debt in an easy to understand metaphor – i.e. how fast presidents are driving.

George W. Bush “drove” faster than any president, in inflation adjusted terms, at the equivalent of 64 miles per hour.  Obama’s budget prediction would “drive” the debt the equivalent of 174 miles per hours.  Which needless to say, is really, really fast.
